Let’s Say Nice Things About... Goldust


In an effort to bring some positivity to professional wrestling—and the world for that matter—Cageside Seats and its community will say nice things about people and things in wrestling every single day throughout 2017.

A reminder of the rules: only positivity allowed here. No back-handed compliments, and CERTAINLY NO NEGATIVITY. If you don’t have something nice to say, keep it to yourself, or take it elsewhere. Negative comments will be deleted and you may be subjected to a ban. Cool? Cool.

Today’s subject: “The Bizarre One” Goldust.

I’ll start: Goldust is a character that quite frankly shouldn’t have worked. Remember, the character debuted in 1995, at a time when the world wasn’t exactly understanding about homosexuality. It wasn’t blatant, but it played so close to the line, it was brilliant.

Though Dustin Rhodes, the man behind Goldust, wasn’t nearly as successful as his father (or his brother, some would argue), the fact that the character had been around for most of the last 22 years means he’s doing something right. And Goldust’s comedic pairings (particularly the one with Booker T) have made for some harmless fun.

Your turn now. Say something nice about Goldust.

And if you have a suggestion for a future “Let’s Say Nice Things About...”, hit me up on Twitter @notoriouseddie. I promise I won’t bite.
